Forgotten Luxury: 20 Best American Personal Luxury Coupes and Convertibles

  1. Cadillac Eldorado ESC

The last and 10th generation of legendary Cadillac Eldorado from 1992 to 2002, marked the end of an era for one of America’s most respected nameplates. The last Eldorado was a quality-built machine filled with luxury and power. However, the market for such cars was dead, and so was this model.

The Eldorado Sport Coupe featured a 4.6-liter V8 engine and a sport-tuned suspension. Also, it had a host of electronic systems and discrete styling cues. Even though those cars are inexpensive today, they will be highly desirable classic in the future.

  1. Cadillac CTS-V Coupe

For years, Cadillac was without a proper performance series to compete with BMW or Mercedes. But finally, the V-Series was born. It was all that Cadillac lovers dreamed of with its powerful engine and world-class handling. Also, it had updated suspension setups and was in exclusive production. But the most successful was the second-generation CTS-V model they produced between 2008 and 2014.

Cadillac offered three body styles, so the CTS-V came as a sedan, a coupe, and interestingly, as a wagon, too. Under the hood was a supercharged 6.2-liter V8 producing 556 HP. This made the CTS-V the most powerful luxury coupe on the market. The suspension and the rest of the drivetrain were advanced and up to the task, so CTS-V was considered a full package and one of the best driver’s cars available.

Did you pick your favorite from this list of the best American personal luxury coupes and convertibles? Some are still rolling down the roads of America, while others have faded away. Maybe someday one of the big car companies will re-introduce one to the car world again.
